ACR Forms Bridge Information Group

Monday, October 17, 2005
Expanding its position in the commercial marine sector, U.S.-based ACR Electronics, Inc. announced a new suite of ACR-branded bridge information technologies that, with agency approvals, will soon be made available to commercial shipping and yachting customers.

These products stem from the earlier announced alliance with Norwegian-based Maritime Information Systems AS MARIS. This alliance combines ACR’s strengths in electronics design, manufacture and sales and marketing with MARIS’ systems and software expertise to create a formidable team.

The new product line includes:

-- RAPIDTRACK Simplified Voyage Data Recorder (S-VDR) with either a Hardened Capsule or a Float Free 406 Memory Capsule.

-- ECDITRACK Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS): ACR’s ECDITRACK offers a total navigation situation appraisal on one integrated display, including charts and, when integrated, ARPA radar and AIS, thus eliminating the need to move between instruments.

-- PILOTRACK: A real-time harbor pilot navigation tool based on ECDIS software with enhanced log, annotation and data update features that allows harbor pilots to work wirelessly through a bluetooth-enabled laptop and a special bluetooth transceiver plugged into a ship’s AIS through the pilot plug.

-- RADARTRACK PC Radar Kit: An ARPA radar overlay allows users to turn their PC into advanced radar and tracking system.
